About Hugo Bryk

Hugo came from a family of musicians and was initially an orchestra conductor. He was one of the founders of GEMA, an entity that negotiated performance rights on behalf of composers and authors. Hugo was the European representative of the American performance rights organization ASCAP; his office was in Berlin.

After fleeing Berlin in 1933 and Paris in 1941 Hugo became one of the exiles in the south of France. He evaded arrest until he was captured by the "Kommando Brunner" on 3 March 1944 and taken to the German wing of the police prison in Nice. Hugo died the day after his arrest from injuries sustained in a fall from a window; his death was officially ruled a suicide.
